WBC lightweight champion (up to 61.2 kg), American Devin Haney (24-0-0, 15 KO) announced that he was ready to meet with the leader of the division, Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko (14-1-0, 10 KO), who, he believes he will win his upcoming bout against IBF title holder Teofimo Lopez (15-0-0, 12 KO).
“To be honest, I think Loma is ready to fight, but I don’t think his team wants that. They think it’s not in his best interest. But he is a real champion. He has proven that he is ready to face the best.
I do not know how ESPN and DAZN will agree [об этом бое]… I do not want to say something that will negatively affect the organization of the battle. Because I say one thing and then it gets wrong, “Haney said.
